Public reenactment of a speech originally given by activist and Black Panther Party member Angela Davis at DeFremery Park in Oakland, California on November 12, 1969. Davis makes the case for a united movement that links imperialism abroad with domestic oppression. She calls for the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam, for the release of domestic political prisoners, and for the defeat and humiliation of the US Government. Sheilagh Brooks, an Oakland-based actor and community organizer, delivered the speech on location in DeFremery Park on August 2, 2008. This video is based on a 20-minute speech and was shown at regular intervals on MTV's giant high-definition video screen in Times Square from August 15–September 30, 2008.
